For more info:

Did you watched F.R.I.E.N.D.S?
If you did, you should definitely visit the Central Perk Café!
Remember how the 6 of them always hang out at this cafe and they always have the couch seats? It is everything that you see in the show in real life!
Actually I watched only some episodes before, but didn't really catch their jokes. Wahahahahha~
But it doesn't mean that if you never watch before or you don't get it, you shouldn't be visiting this café. Although I would say that watching the show would help a lot and make your visit to Central Perk much more fun. But nonetheless.... 

The replica of the Central Perk Sign! So exciting! 

Director's Chair for seats! I like!

This place was totally as cool as it looks.
FRIENDS lovers would totally understand it.

Their menus look funky too~

They are showing F.R.I.E.N.D.S series over here too~ Eat and watch F.R.I.E.N.D.S with friends! geddit? haha~

This dog! I remember when Joey's house got repossessed and Ross bought this dog back for Joey!  Everyone hates it! haha!

Ross's corner with his dinosaurs and his geeky stuffs! UNAGI! 

They are selling some merchandises too~
A little costly though~

Monica's Kitchen! A lot of scenes were filmed in her kitchen. Full of memories! Even the final scene was done in her kitchen where Monica and Chandler are moving to the countryside for a bigger house for their kids. The whole gang bid their farewells and it was a very heart-wrenching scene. :(

A good background for photo taking~

Joey and Chandler's Foosball table! 

Non stop taking photos~

Hey girl~

Chandler's Righteous Mac & Cheese $14
The One with Trio Cheese Shavings, Rosemary Oat Crust

 It was a little tad too dry, could be creamier~
But it tasted alright.

Janice's OH MY GOD Baby Back Ribs $36
The One that Falls Off the BBQ Liberian Bone, Served with Pickles & Compressed Fruits
The portion was quite big for 1 person.
But luckily we ordered a few mains n sides to share amongst ourselves. So it was still ok.
The ribs were tender and juicy. :)

AHH Unagi $36
The One with Squid Ink Risotto with Corn & Chives, Smoked Eel, Poached Egg with Soy & Wasabi Powder & Dashi Reduction

Wanted to do a Boomerang video of cutting the Poached Egg. But it failed,  coz it was slightly overcooked. Sad :(
Unagi was good!

Heart Attack $15
The One with Bacon & Cream (Found in Rachel's Dad Fridge)

 I like this one! The combination of Cream, Cheese and Bacon is great!
Would go very well with a pint of cold beer while chilling with my bunch of sisters~

Ross-Ti $14
The way Ross wears it(Sputnik)
Served with Sour Cream, Bacon & Scallion

After having the "Heart Attack", this seemed Mehhhhhh~
But of course, this ain't a bad dish either. Just that it is almost similar to "Heart Attack".
So people... just order "Heart Attack" will do!

 Phoebe's You're my Lobster Pasta $32
The One Made with Lobster, Spicy Mentaiko Sauce & Crabmeat

 We were expecting a creamy pasta.
Because normally, Mentaiko sauce should be creamy right?
But to our surprise, the pasta arrived like this.

Looks more like an Aglio Olio to us.
The portion of Lobster was generous though. And it tasted not bad too, just that when we imagined it to be something else, and it's not what you expected so you tend to be a little disappointed.

Looking at our different outfit style, you would tell what it means by "Opposite attracts".
Wahahahahah~ Just kidding.
We are a crazy bunch of people.

Sadako detected*

T shirts selling around $49~ Not saying that the quality is really good either. Tsk.

Huiyu trying to beat Chandler's top score! haha!

I love this Candid shot~

Smelly cat, Smelly cat...

All in all, I would say it is really a cool and nice place to chill with your friends.
Chit chat with some drinks and fries on a Friday night does sound attractive, no?
Totally on point. It's not packed, so quite cosy too.
Probably also because it is located at Central Mall, not at The Central. Do not mixed them up. 
You will need to walk abit from the MRT station.

But the food is a little on the pricey side. Taste wise was not too bad. Order the "Heart Attack"! I highly recommend it!
Service was prompt and courteous too.

Overall, I would rate it a 8/10.

Been some time since I post my #ootd~
